  • Published on July 15th, 2020

Welcome to No Place Like Home, a podcast that gets to the heart of climate change. We’re your hosts – Mary Anne Hitt and Anna Jane Joyner. We’re two Southern women, climate activists, and dear friends. On No Place Like Home, we explore the biggest story of our time from inviting, intimate, creative, and surprising angles. From staying sane in the age of climate change, to real talk about whether or not our personal choices really matter to saving the planet, No Place Like Home dives into the spiritual, personal, cultural, and emotional dimensions of climate change. We don’t shy away from science and politics, but we always bring along our sense of humor – and a feisty dose of hope.

About the Author

Not only is coal burning responsible for one third of US carbon emissions—the main contributor to climate disruption—but it is also making us sick, leading to as many as 13,000 premature deaths every year and more than $100 billion in annual health costs. The Beyond Coal campaign’s main objective is to replace dirty coal with clean energy by mobilizing grassroots activists in local communities to advocate for the retirement of old and outdated coal plants and to prevent new coal plants from being built.
